Handsome as he may be, Jake doesn't qualify for many of the JRTCA competitions due to his height (16 3/4"). Therefore he is focusing most of his career on things he can do without breed restrictions, such as Agility, Rally Obedience and Obedience. He is currently working on his AKC Excellence title in Rally-O, having just one leg to go.
About Jake, RA, CGC
He's our first Jack Russell, and what an experience it has been. Jake was born June 12, 2003. He was 4 months old when he came to live with us. He has a terrific personality with a nice even temperament. Well socialized, he and his mommy worked at PetSmart as dog trainers. Jake made lots of friends among his co-workers, especially the pretty girls at the cash register. They always gave him treats!
Jake cares about the less fortunate that he spends most of his weekends working at nursing home and local hospitals as a therapy dog. He loves to show them his tricks and is eager to provide love to those who want to forget their troubles. He's well loved and they are always happy to see him and give him a loving hug.

Don't let that sweet little face fool you, this little angel is all Jack Russell! Little Zoe joined our family in June of 2004. She lives with her big brother, Jake, another JRT. Zoe is very active and loves to play and romp with kids, adults and anything else out there. She is a natural performer as she loves to pose and prance her stuff.
Although one might describe her as a Diva, she does love to perform. She is demanding and knows what she wants. She has won several awards for her good looks as well as her ability to perform in public, mainly Agility and Obedience. Starting in 2008, Zoe will be following her big brother in Rally-Obedience. She has already competed in the JRTCA circuit, now it's time for AKC.
